Testing continues on the new mount x setup and widefield rig. This is an ongoing project amongst several of them. It feels like a good time to publish some of the data for sharing the progress. Looking forward to sharing some more data and hopefully life, work, and the skies conspire to gather much more in the near term! Thanks for looking and as always, love to hear your comments on the image, processing, and data.
